Despite the horrendous tornado that tore through Joplin, Mo. last month, the Missouri Grazing Conference will still be held in that city.
The conference, scheduled for July 6 – 8, will be held at the Holiday Inn Convention Center and nearby hotel. Both are outside the devastation zone of the EF5 tornado.
A large part of the conference will be tours of grazing dairies, none of which were damaged by the storm, says Tony Rickard, University of Missouri dairy specialist.
